The Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone Electric Guitar delivers traditional Tele twang with a little extra on the low-end. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.

Now Fender offers a new variation on an all-time classic: the Blacktop Baritone Telecaster. The Fender Telecaster changed the music world and has been a signature instrument for guitarists throughout the decades: Jimmy Bryant, Muddy Waters, Albert Collins, Roy Buchanan, Bruce Springsteen, Joe Strummer, Merle Haggard, Danny Gatton have all forged a legacy of historic recordings on a Fender Telecaster; and that’s just naming a few. The Blacktop Telecaster Baritone offers a whole new world of tonal variety and fits into just about any setting. Play it clean for low-end rockabilly twang, or with heavy gain for some gut-crunching low-tuned power chording.

Combining vintage style with a few modern appointments, features include an alder body outfitted with 2 Vintage style Telecaster single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. A Fender designed Blacktop Tele Humbucking pickup sits in the bridge postion. The humbucking really brings out the low-end, full-throttle growl of the baritone’s B-to-B tuning, while the 2 Single Coils deliver Vintage style Tele twang. A 5-way pickup switch allows for infinite tonal possibilities. These player-approved mods give the Blacktop Telecaster Baritone a hot-rodded feel right out of the box.

A maple neck has the classic vintage tint and the rosewood fretboard boasts a more updated 9.5” radius and 22 medium jumbo frets. To accommodate the baritone set-up, the neck boasts a 27” scale. The chrome hardware includes sealed tuners and a strings-through-body hardtail bridge with 6 individual steel saddles. Available in 3 Tone Sunburst, Classic Copper and Ghost Silver. Case not included.

    Comments about Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone Electric Guitar:

    This Baritone is great. So much fun. It has opened up a whole new world for me to explore as a guitar/bass player. The only issues I had was getting it ordered. Placed my order and told the guitar would come from another store since it was not stocked at mine. Called 5 days later to find that the guitar was sold at the other store despite me having put a deposit down. Ok, I understand that the guy from the other store wanted his commision so he sold it to someone there with cash in hand. Not good business, but not the biggest issue. The problem was that no one at my store bothered to check on things, so 5 days later when I called, there was no guitar on order. For me to have call them and ask and they have no idea is unacceptable. The sales staff dropped the ball and then had the nerve to act like it was somehow ok and pushed blame on someone else. Do that behind the scenes. I'm the customer, make it right! This should have warranted a discount, but these guys seemed more annoyed that I was upset by having to call them to tell them that my guitar still needs to be ordered. Well, on top of that, I was charged for a setup. I would have hoped that I'd see some customer service at this point and Sam Ash would have it done in order to seal the deal. I don't know who buys a new car for example and gets charged for a tune up or something else to make it work the way it is intended. After a letter sent to HQ, I never heard one peep from anyone attempting to resolve my issues. Where's the customer service?!?! I've spent thousands in the store this year alone as I do every year. Needless to say, Canoga Park will no longer get my business. I have the baritele now, setup and loving it. The one saving grace for this store is Bob in the repair dept. He set this thing up so nicely as he always does. Overall, great guitar, just get it somewhere else.
